LoneStarGeek Speaks

By Steven McDowell

While using a can of compressed air to blow dust bunnies out of your computer is good routine maintenance, that’s not what I mean by keeping your computer clean. In the last column, I mentioned malware, and touched on the
topic of its removal, but that is only part of keeping your system clean.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

At the risk of being redundant, this year is going far too quickly. It’s not just teachers who are feeling the time crunch. I hear more people wondering where the year has gone and voicing frustration that life is just too busy. I have some of my Christmas shopping done, but I have yet to put one baked good into a pan.

Here Turkey, Turkey, Turkey

By Lindy Lieban Schulz.

It is the week of Thanksgiving and my heart is brought back to memories of family and friends. Our Thanksgivings since living here in San Saba have been quiet ones, normally shared with only Patches and Peepers and so they have been true times of being thankful of times past. I watch the commercials and even the shows on television where families gather and are full of dysfunction make feel nostalgic and seem wonderful. Yes, I know, my weirdness is showing again. Hold on a second I will try and rein it in a little…okay, there…I think I have a handle on it.

Angels Unaware 2013

We need you to help make Christmas a little better for some children in need by supporting the 2013 Angels Unaware program sponsored by the San Saba County Child Welfare Board (CWB). Shortly after Thanksgiving, 
they will place a much worn Christmas tree in the atrium of the Arrowhead Bank building in San Saba decorated with little paper Christmas ornaments. Each anonymous "angel" ornament is numbered and has the age (up to
sixth grade), gender, and sometimes the request or need of a known child. A gift price limit of $30 was set to make this giving equitable and affordable

A Look Through Lindy's Window

By Lindy Lieban Schulz
 
Hello dear ones, since last we spoke life has picked me up, thrown me down and tried to bury me under a weight of worries but here I sit like a little Texas bug writing about the experience of it all. I consider myself one of the lucky ones, I have a great ability to see the bigger picture and look way beyond it. I am not sure if I am able to naturally or if it stems from living an unselfish life, all I know is it has allowed me to understand and survive a great many difficult lessons.

The Idle American

By Dr. Don Newbury
 
Composer George Gershwin and Stephenville elementary school music teacher Virginia Bond would likely have agreed on much. She would have drawn the line, however, on the premise of his hit composition, “Summertime,” objecting to the line about it being “easy.”

Memory

By: Hannah Hibler.
It was a cute little trailer house in a nice neighborhood. The smell of the fresh flowers, the sight of the intricately painted flower vases on the front porch, and even the creeks of the steps made it feel like home. Even the neighbors and their surroundings I found peaceful. I ran in my grandmas house with excitement each and every time we approached it. I had always hoped that one day she would come and visit us in Texas, and leave Louisiana for a little while, but mom said she was getting too old for that sort of traveling. Before I enter, we always have a tete a tete about how my year has gone. I like speaking to my grandma in a private way like that.

Sugariffic Invention

By: Madison Shahan.
Once I had a dream. It was one of my favorite dreams of all. Let me tell it to you. Once upon a time I was going to invent a cupcake machine. It would make a cupcake for you by shooting up a regular cupcake then you would press a button to choose icing. After you chose the icing, it would drop out of the top of the machine. I was going to have to make a plan. So, I got out a paper and pen and got to work. I decided to make it hold two hundred cupcakes and a lot of icing. Every cupcake would cost one dollar. When I was finished, I would send them out all over the world. Every time my cupcake machine made a hundred dollars they would send the money back to me.
